Abstract

The division Concepts of the Assistant Chief of Staff Evaluation (ACOS Eval) of the Belgian Ministry of Defence is making a study on the subject of “management by costs” based on an approach of capabilities. The original idea was based on the generation of future capabilities (investments and planning) and later extended to the operational use of the existing capabilities. In this paper an intelligent agents framework is proposed to simulate the possible scenarios of capabilities. Central to this subject is the ontology issue, where the Ontology Negotiation Protocol, as explained by Bailin and Truszkowski [Bailin 2001], is one of the solutions that should be further developed to resolve the problems related to the ontologies.
